Spotlight On The Willoughby Neighborhood

Norfolk, Virginia

Willoughby By The Water

Willoughby is a extremely cool neighborhood! It’s West of Ocean View, South of the Chesapeake Bay,  East of the Hampton Roads Bay Bridge Tunnel and more Chesapeake Bay, and North of Willoughby Bay and Naval Station Norfolk. Those are some basics. Willoughby is a very striking land feature because it’s a spit! It is a mass of land that juts out over the water and is surrounded on three sides by Chesapeake Bay. Beaches surround this area. If you want your own beach, this is one of the ways you can get it in Coastal Virginia.  Shifting sans are continually adding land to the spit in a westward direction. Norfolk created breakwaters and sand replenishment to prevent erosion of the North side beaches. Interstate access is as simple as driving out of the neighborhood. Interstate 64 runs right through Willoughby.

The main attraction of Willoughby is obviously the beaches and the water. While you definitely have plenty of that to enjoy, you have several public parks you can enjoy! There’s Captains Quarters Nature Center and Park, Sarah Constant Beach Park, the interestingly named Monkey Bottom Park, Community Beach Park and Ocean View Golf Course!

Willoughby Inn Seafood Restaurant is near the tip of the spit and has been there for many years. Most of the locals like it. South of the Interstate is Sunset Grill. This one is highly rated and specializes in seafood. The Ocean View Fishing Pier has it’s own restaurant, and as you can imagine, fishing. Greenies is a legendary Willoughby favorite. And the Thirsty Camel has been around for a long time. There are not too many businesses to ruin the quiet Willoughby feeling. But no neighborhood is complete without 2 7-Elevens. A lot of your shopping will be done further south in Ocean View.

If you have a boat, you’re in luck! there are a bunch of boat slips to the south protected from the bay weather. If you need information for the boat slips, contact me and I will put you in touch with the management.

Just a heads up for you. Don’t call the area Ocean View in front of any of the home-owners here. They will be offended.

If you’re in the market for a new home, you’re probably in the market for a new mortgage. Here are 3 critical shopping tips for anyone looking for a new loan.

  • Know the Terms
    All the terms of a loan matter. Unfortunately, shopping for a mortgage is not as simple as finding out how much a lender will let you borrow and at what interest rate. You’ll want to get a complete breakdown of what any offer your receive means to you on a monthly basis as well as how much money you’ll be spending over the life of the loan.
  • Not all Mortgages are the same
    There are several mortgage types available to residential home buyers. Most people will shop for a traditional fixed rate mortgage, but other options are available including adjustable rate loans (ARMs), Federal Housing Administration loans (FHAs), and Veteran’s Administration loans. You’ll want to be sure to understand what kind of loan a lender is offering you.
  • Fees, Fees, Fees
    Most loans have fees associated with them in additional to the principal amount borrowed to buy the home. You can sometimes borrow the money need to cover these fees, but that will obviously increase the overall amount of debt you undertake. Some fees are paid up front, and others are not due until closing.

If you’d like to chat with personally about how to shop for a mortgage and what other questions you can ask lenders to find the best deal, call us! We’ll get you started on the right path so we can start looking for your new home!

Why Should You Use An Agent To Sell Your Home?

Selling your home is a big endeavor that should include working with an expert, a real estate professional. To compensate the agent for their time and expertise a portion of the money you receive upon the home sale will be used to compensate the real estate agent. Commissions are scary and can be difficult to justify when selling your home. Along with helping you stay objective an agent guides you through the selling process. Here’s a list of reason why you should use a real estate agent to sell your home.

1. Real Estate Agents Possess Overall Market Knowledge:

As you begin the process of selling your home you want to have an expert that can guide you through the process. A real estate agent has access to a variety of data about recent home sales in your neighborhood, which will allow you to price your home accordingly. Along with this agents can access your local MLS. Your home will be included in the MLS, so agents helping home buyers can be shown the various details.

2. Real Estate Agents Are Trained in the Many Legalities of Selling a Home

Selling your home is one of the largest transactions you’ll make, so make sure you don’t miss a step in the process. During the selling process there is tons of paperwork that needs to be completed. A real estate professional ensures selling your home will go smoothly and will also be able to alert you should problems arise in which you need to consult with a lawyer.
